A photo that Kim Kardashian shared to social media, has triggered an online discussion about car seat safety.

Kim posted an adorable photo on Saturday of her 18-month-old son, Saint, sitting in a car seat.

While many commenters mentioned how adorable Saint is, others voiced concerns about the safety of his car seat setup ― specifically the fact that the toddler appeared to be front-facing.

“He is so cute let’s protect this handsome boy by making sure [he] is rear facing,” wrote one Facebook user. “It’s illegal to have a child facing forward in California that is less than 2 years old. Please turn his car seat around, it’s not too late!” added another.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children remain rear-facing in their car seats until they reach the age of 2 or until they reach the maximum height and weight for their seat.

It’s not the first time that Kardashian has come under fire for car seat errors. In 2015, she posted a photo of North (which has since been deleted) in which the child’s car seat straps and chest clip appeared to be in the incorrect position.

Celebrities are not the only ones making these mistakes. Studies have shown that as many as 95 percent of families install their newborns’ car seats incorrectly and almost 75 percent of parents face their children’s car seats the incorrect way.
